Ben, Inverted (Screen Study)

Painting from a digital image on my computer screen, the glow of the screen is recreated through the vibrancy of the white paint. It illuminates outwards from the greyscale palette of the greys and the blacks. The painting is undoubtedly one of a digital image. However, while it is so clearly an image, the texture of the paint and tooth of the canvas are equally visible. As such, the work radiates tension between its position and role as image or painting.
